    I love pansies; but I could never quite capture a pansy's beauty in a photo. It's never been quite clear, or the sun was the wrong angle, or the colors weren't right. Then the pansies all wilted away. But, they renewed themselves and this morning was overcast, so right after chores, I grabbed my camera and GOT IT!! Finally! :D :D :D

    Just wondering: Do you put your pictures up in your classroom or at school?
    I just know your going to say, "Of course!" :D
    Have you even put them on a quilt?
    This is spectacular. I love panises right after roses, and I love pink, yellow and green together...and, and , and :wink:

    Beautiful Karla. I love pansies and their cute little 'faces'! Did you know that the name comes from the French 'pensée' meaning 'thought' so it's very appropriate as a remembrance flower. :D

    Another question about "have you.............?" Have you ever done the one where the flower is placed on cotton fabric and smashed with a mallet? The dye of the flower "stains" the fabric. It's a beautiful art. I don't know the whole process, but have seen it done on TV. One woman had made blocks for a quilt doing this. That pansy would be beautiful on a quilt. (But would hate smashing it. :roll: )

    Beautiful photo. I love pansies too, so cheerful looking and yet so hardy to cooler weather.
